Staff is friendly. Food is delicious. We live locally and stop in every couple weeks or so. My favorite dish is the wild mushroom gorgonzola risotto with either shrimp or chicken. The flat bread, thin crust pizzas are good too.

Pros - the bread and dipping oil were good, the help were very nice, the beer was good, the surroundings pleasant. Cons - the food just was not that great and both my partner and I felt the same about our meals.
